When: Classes will meet on Tuesdays from 4-5 pm via Zoom and will be recorded for those who need to watch at a different time.  Classes will begin Tuesday, October 26 and run through mid-February.

Cost: The class is free, but participants will need a copy of Ashcroft’s Programmed Instruction: UEB and Companion Reader for Ashcroft’s Programmed Instruction: UEB.  These materials can be ordered at: http://www.scalarspublishing.com/ordering/.
